What is Supplemental Instruction?
Supplemental Instruction (sometimes referred to as study groups) can be simply described
as facilitator-led group study that is offered in conjunction with challenging courses
each semester. A trained peer who is very knowledgeable about the subject area
attends the class and then leads a group session to focus on the difficult concepts and
problems in the course. Supplemental Instruction is FREE, purely voluntary; you can attend
as often as you like, provided there is space (this is a first-come, first-served
program). The sessions are collaborative (so you will be working with classmates
to better understand the material), they will show you effective strategies
for studying the course material (which you will have a chance to practice
together), and they will give you a chance to ask questions or pose your
Note: Supplemental Instruction is offered at colleges nationwide. Research has shown that students who participate in several S.I. sessions generally obtain better grades in their courses.
